Food Truck Festival TREK in ‘s-Hertogenbosch


Yesterday, the kids, myself, Nils and a friend in S’s new school class attended the Festival TREK in ‘s-Hertogenbosch.   I didn’t take the typical amount of photos I would have taken probably because I didn’t enjoy myself as much as I had wanted.  I will just say next year, I’m totally going to return sans kids and with adults who enjoy food trucks and like to be at these type events 🙂  I will then be able to plunk myself down and enjoy nibbles and chill out in the company of those who enjoy this type of event.



Soren and Maebh enjoyed the swing ride (Maebh’s first time on it as this one didn’t go so high or too fast). In fact, she went on TWICE!


The kids had loempias, fried potatoes on a stick and some sort of drink which they got to keep the plastic cup.  And of course, when Soren saw Carlingford (yes Ireland) oysters we both had to each have one!   Apart from the oyster, I only ate a loempia, had a beer and had a gin and tonic.  I’d like to have the tacos but we never we back around and ended up leaving.  Oh and we did have one injury due to some kid running by Maebh accidentally hit her in the face and her tooth hit her lip and blood everywhere!

See photos from their official site which you can see the lovely atmosphere and the vibe!    I will add that while the entry to the event was free the cost of the food is quite expensive.

I am an American currently living in the Netherlands. I enjoy snapping photos and blogging along the way about our family’s journey as we moved from USA to the UK for a couple years then onto Ireland for three & half years and now in our next adventure in the Netherlands where the kids and are are learning Dutch. As you can probably tell by the name of the blog “Stars, Stripes & Mayonnaise” our family is half American & half Dutch and if you know one thing about the Dutch is that they LOVE their mayonnaise! I seen ’em do it man, they fuckin‘ drown ’em in it. When I started this blog way when it was to capturing memories of our family – essentially a journal of our family adventures, their love of mayonnaise, my love of photography, D.I.Y., crafting, sea glass hunting and exploring with our two amazing kids.
